The Selection is the first book of a series, it is set in a country called Illea. The Selection is about a competition that is held by the royal family everytime the future King comes of age. The competition is between 35 young women who are randomly selected to enter the competition, and the winner will be the future Queen. But for our protagonist, America Singer, being selected for the competition is truly awful. Being selected means she can't continue her secret relationship with Aspen. The book is set in a castle with loads of jewels and dresses, this book is truly perfect for a teenage girl. Although America took some time to get used to the book was amazing and all the characters seemed very realistic.

Kiera Cass' writing style is very unique and incredibly descriptive. Having descriptive writing is very important in the book because it allows us to visualise the dresses and the rooms and even the characters. The writing style made me very sympathetic to certain characters. I think Kiera Cass has a very good writing style that makes you feel the feeling that the protagonist, and even other characters, feel.
I really enjoyed this book and finished it in a few days despite it being around 300 pages. I would definitley recommend this to teenage girls and I think perhaps maybe some boys could enjoy this book aswell. Everything about this book is excellent, it's got drama, humour and is perfect for people who like the majority of young adult books. I think this is a book that can be enjoyed by a lot of people ages 11-19. In conclusion this is an incredibly wonderful book.
